The forgotten language : an introduction to the understanding of dreams, fairy tales, and myths

In this important study of the universal language of dreams, one of the foremost psychoanalytic thinkers of our time presents a challenging discussion of the nature of the dream-experience. Against the background of a penetrating history of dream interpretation, Dr. Fromm offers his own concepts with the aid of a great many case histories on modern psychoanalytic work on dreams. Dr. Fromm also presents a comprehensive study of the Oedipus myth, as well as other myths and fairytales. The book outlines the differing approaches of Freud, Jung and Fromm, and relates the author's own views to modern life in a manner both fascinating and useful to the specialist and layman. -- From publisher's description
